Hurricane Katrina Symposium, Part 2

I'm happy to report that Mississippi College School of Law's symposium on the legal impact of Hurricane Katrina went extremely well. The panels and speakers (on federalism, insurance law, and land use controls--see the above link for their bios) were excellent, and the insurance panel was particularly lively, with participants including Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood and prominent Mississippi lawyer Dickie Scruggs (more recent photo here), who made national news (and good cash) as the primary negotiator of the state settlements with the tobacco industry. General Hood has a reputation for being passionate about his chosen causes, and he did not disappoint, with sharp criticism of the insurance industry for denying claims on the Mississippi Coast. Over 500 people attended, including two representatives from the Louisiana Attorney General's office. The Mississippi College Law Review will publish an issue with articles from the presenters later this academic year.
